Need Advice!! Buying a 2012 Scag Turf Tiger, What to look for?? Good Deal?

I am looking to buy a 2012 Scag Turf Tiger 61" with the 35hp Vanguard and Donaldson Air System. The TT has just under 90 hours on it and looks to be in overall good condition. Has a slight bend in the (Non-structural) front part of the foot area(where the picture of tiger is, they accidently drove into a trailer hitch)

They are asking $7800 and are flexible on price(really need to sell). I believe this is a good deal but is there anything I need to look for??

I don't want to buy something that may have an underlying issue that I am not aware of.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks all!!!

Great price, check to see if any of the warranty left on it is transferable, which I don't think it is. Check the condition of the oil and ask about maintenance done on it.

That is a good price. I looked at whether Scag's warranty is transferrable, and it is not.
I don't mind spending money, I mind wasting money!

Thank you very much for the replys! I will demo it today after work and check everything for signs of abnormal wear.

I will check the oil for sure.

Any other areas?

This mover wasn't used commercially and is supposed to be built like a tank so it would be difficult to tear it up in 90 hours.... or I would hope to believe.
